Default Longines Spirit 42 mm

Temptation...there is so much to like...should I resist ?...one of the best executions of a pilot’s watch, for the price, I have seen so far.

Jacques, the Spirit is an elegant watch with a reliable and accurate ETA movement. It is also reasonably priced. Not much reason to resist. Go for it!

You have superb taste. The Spirit is gorgeous, classic, and from a renowned maker of quality pieces... a versatile wristwatch you are bound to be drawn to wear... I imagine you would not regret it. I agree with “Go for it!”, and would only add... Enjoy!

Thx Serge...I inquired about the delivery time with my dealer. I had to wait for my Longines Annual Calendar for more than a year...and only could get the 40 mm...so I’m not sure if I want to wait for another year...I will know in a few days...there is strong Borg vibe going on though...resistance is futile.

Beautiful watch. If you can’t stand the wait, you could check Stowa as an alternative.
